Our Second Home in the DR!
Reviewed 3 days ago

Villa Taina is the best place to stay in Cabarete.
It's the perfect beach side boutique resort with a great location.
Close enough to kite beach to be right beside all of the great activities of Cabarete and also right beside all of the nightlife and great beach restaurants.

The restaurant at Villa Taina is not to be missed though.
They do different specials everyday and night and their Mongolian buffet is incredible.
Delicious food while your toes are in the sand, there is nothing else like it.
Not to mention the great happy hour deals.

Ask the front desk for anything you need and they are happy to help.
We got great "locals" deals on excursions, a rental car and awesome beach activities.
They really know how to analyse their guests' needs to provide great service to make sure everyone has the best possible time here.

This was our second stay here in two years and we will definitely return again as it definitely is starting to feel like our second home.

Thanks everyone at Villa Taina for another great stay!

Villa Taina - More than just a hotel
Reviewed 1 month ago

We stayed at Villa Taina over New Years for 8 days. Me, my husband, my daughter all loved it! Villa Taina offered something for everyone - from relaxation to volleyball to happy hour! It was so much more than just a hotel! It was home, it was a gathering place, it was a fun place to be!

We have traveled around the world, and most important to us is friendliness. Villa Taina delivered! Front desk staff, security guards, wait staff - everyone - friendly, smiling, communicative and helpful! Always felt safe and cared for. Felt like part of the family by our second day.

The food at the beachside restaurant was consistently impressive. (We ate breakfast and lunch there every day plus a couple of dinners). Mornings and daytimes were perfectly relaxing on the beach under a palm tree, or in a hammock by the lounge area. Afternoons were inspiring, watching the kite surfers or volleyball players. And then the bar transformed into THE place to be during happy hour - always a bevy of activity with new people to meet from around the world and great Latin music.

Villa Taina is perfectly located - right on the beach, just at the juncture of kite surfing and wind surfing, with great swimmable, smooth sand bottom shoreline, and steps from everything, yet not in the middle of the bustle. Less than a 2 min walk along the beach and you hit a line of restaurants, bars, clubs (after 11:00) - close enough yet far enough away. The beach itself is profoundly picturesque - the views are even more beautiful than the photos! (Definitely best beach front in all of Cabarete!)

The room was clean and well appointed and surprisingly quiet. Ours overlooked the walkway between the reception building and the buildings right on the beach (top floor) with a partial ocean view. We never heard any of our neighbors!

My only complaint is the number of vendors on the beach that try to sell you stuff. They swarm you when you first arrive (which can get exhausting) but eventually they start to leave you alone. They seem well intentioned though - each has a badge and a number - and they are friendly. Some you might even grow to love!

I can go on and on, but just to say, we can’t wait to join the ranks of folks who return to Villa Taina again and again!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We stayed 8 nights last week. We needed two adjoining rooms, one for my husband and me, and one for our two adult daughters. Nicole worked it out perfectly for us with a top floor (4th) suite with one of the rooms having a HUGE oceanfront balcony which was one of our favorite perches day and evening. The balcony had room for 2 of us to relax in lounge chairs and the other 2 playing cards at the table, plus we could have fit 2 or more chairs there as well. The rooms were incredibly spacious, had tile floors and a safe. The beds were firm, comfortable, and clean, and the bathrooms were large. Unfortunately, there was no elevator, but we managed. Security guards were a constant presence. The neighborhood out front of the hotel felt a bit sketchy, and a security guard always manned the doorway. But on the beach side, we felt very safe and comfortable. We paid for half-board (optional), which meant our breakfasts and lunches were very conveniently included. We ate at other nearby restaurants for dinner. We could buy bottled water at the bar and restaurant, but their restaurant uses filtered water, so the coffee, etc., was fine to drink. I communicated by email with the staff many times leading up to our trip, and they were very quick to respond in clear English and very cooperative. However, the front line staff did not always speak English, so we had lots of hybrid conversations trying to get our point across. The other negative is that we felt there was not a lot to do in the area other than enjoy the beach, unless you kite-surf or wind-surf, which is huge there and fun to watch. (The beach IS windy.) Thoroughly enjoyed the Hotel Villa Taina.

Nice hotel
Reviewed 4 months ago

We stayed at the Hotel Villa Taina for 6 nights. Great location, directly at the beach, although beach view from the rooms was none due to trees. Dinner and the bar were great, breakfast only ok. The food was good, but selection in the morning was minimal, no buffet, everything needed to be ordered extra. Coffee was good only when freshly brewed, after a while it was bitter and burned. I recommend a different way of handling coffee. The drinks at the bar were great, great staff in the entire facility. Cleanliness was good, although better at Villa Serena in Las Galeras, Samanà. Altogether a nice place in a nice location. We would stay there again, because of the location, the friendliness of staff, and the wonderful dinners and bar.

Just fantastic
Reviewed 6 months ago

You need to ask for room with sea view. For the rest everything is absolutely great. Small hôtel directly on the beach, with an excellent restaurant never overcrowded and a bar with happy hour just when you are back from windsurfing. The surfclub associated looks great as well but we reserved somewhere else. Staff are very pleasant and the atmosphere is a mix of family and wind/kite surfers. Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended. Will definitely Come back.
